, i wanted to bring in our white house correspondent, dan lothian. dan, is it all about the timing? is it now or never? is it capitalizing on the emotion of this country or is there something else afoot? >> no i do think it is now or never. the white house sees a sense of urgency here in pushing something forward. when you look back over the past several years, when you had these massive shootings, whether it's in connecticut, whether it's in colorado or elsewhere, there's talk in washington about coming up with guidelines to prevent something like that from happening again. then usually it gets lost in the noise of washington there are other pressing issues that come up. in fact we probably would have been talking about fiscal issues had that shooting not happened. they see this as an opportunity to seize the moment. they believe the president is putting forward a comprehensive plan, but it's controversial. a lot of pushback, not only from gun rights groups but some lawmakers up on capitol hill. >>> if you wouldn't mind we minding viewers. there was a lot of talk about the 19 pote

's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim here is to cut down on the ability of a gunman to go in and release up to 30 rounds in a short period of time. in addition, the president will be pushing for universal background checks so that everyone who buys aunder questi goes a criminal or mental health check. in addition the president wants to request funds be available for mental health illnesst to make sure there's money there for those things to be treated and to provide schools with the support they need for enhanced safety. the president is also

it a terrorist attack as well. for more, let's go to dan rivers in london. what are the latest reports there on the hostage situation? >> effectively, according to the minister of information in algeria, this is a standoff. the algerian security forces surrounded this gas plant in the far east of algeria. the islamists are holed up inside, holding a number of western hostages. we don't know the exact numbers. there's been a press conference this morning from the norwegian stat oil company. it is saying that it had 17 employees there, 5 escaped. and therefore 12 remain unaccounted for. not clear if all are being held hostage or if some escaped into the desert. it's a confused situation. the state department confirmed there are americans among those being held. we understand as well possibly british, japanese, french as well as those norwegians. a number of countries being embroiled in this hostage crisis which looks like it may have been precipitated by algeria's decision to allow french planes to fly of the country as part of its ongoing military campaign in mali to the south. >> i kno
